Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is a state that consists of two entities: Republic of Srpska (RS) and Federation of BiH (FBiH). There is also the self-governing District of Brcko (BD). National youth policy is not existing in BiH, yet, due to its constitutional structure and because certain jurisdictions (like youth) are tied by the Constitution to a certain level of government.

Regarding the mechanisms for the development of youth policy, BiH has several instruments at the national level, of which the most important is certainly the Commission for Coordination of Youth Issues in BiH, which operates within the BiH Council of Ministers and the BiH Ministry of Civil Affairs.
